Lori Glori: Thank you for having me.
Alan Olsen: So Laurie, give me your back on how did you move into the role of writing songs and entertaining and doing what you do?
Lori Glori: Well, you know, since I, when I started out, talking, I knew that I wanted to be a singer. I was all the time right around the house scene. And we had me and my three sisters had a gospel singing group, my mother was a great singer as well. And she would teach us. And then as I got older, I started seeing the top 40, bands and clubs. And then I got the opportunity to travel around the world. And that’s when I wrote my first song. And that’s where it all began. And then I ended up in Germany and ended up staying over there for about 30 years, going back and forth and had a lot of opportunity to sing on some very dried some music for some very big stars over there in Europe.
Alan Olsen: So out of all the songs you’ve done, which is most memorable or meaningful to you,
Lori Glori: The one that I’m doing right now, my new my new EP shine, that is the my best writing that I’ve done. I feel like
Alan Olsen: and is that tell tell me more about shine? How did that come about?
Lori Glori: Okay, well, you know, let me I’m gonna tell you what happened, my voice got stolen from me, and went triple platinum. Over there in Germany and artists, big time star over there. We went into the studio and did a collaboration. And I signed a piece of paper that I didn’t know I was signing away all my rights. And the end result of that was all the songs that I sung in the studio went triple platinum, and he used another woman to lip sync to my voice. And at that point, I got very depressed and actually didn’t want to say anymore and just gave up wanting to just give up. And by the grace of dad, he brought me out of that depression. And the songs that I wrote on the My new EP, are inspired by that what happened?
Alan Olsen: You know, it’s interesting in life, sometimes we were taking a path down one road. And then situations happen as this one did. Yeah. And then that discouragement brings out lessons of life. That’s right. And so and so now you you’ve come back to the US,
Lori Glori: I’ve come back to you as an and I’m having my first concert on Saturday. And where’s this going to Allen temple, Allen temple in Oakland. It’s a very, very big church, one of the biggest in the Bay Area. And so I’m, you know, I’m really excited about can anybody attend. It’s actually it’s a women’s conference, but anybody pretty much can come. It was terrible that it’s at three o’clock in the afternoon, Allen temple, Ella Tebow, and we do some of that. I’m gonna do all my new music and my new EP. Yeah, so I’m looking forward to that. And it’s gonna be you know, it’s been a long time since I’ve had a performance in the United States.

Lori Glori: There was one artists and her name is Jennifer rush and she wrote the she was the actual singer of Celine Dion’s power of power of love. But it was a mega hit for Jennifer rush in Europe before Celine got a hold of the song. And that’s how I really got a chance to really do big tours like Buckingham Palace. Same kind of the coin.
